What Is a Forensic Lawyer?

Benefits of Choosing an ACS Forensic Lawyer-Scientist to Defend You

Attorney Chris Hesse is one of the few lawyers in the entire country—and the only lawyer in West Texas—who has earned the ACS-CHAL Forensic Lawyer-Scientist Designation. As a forensic lawyer, he has gained in-depth understanding of the chemistry behind blood alcohol content testing and drug testing, and how those processes impact criminal cases.

Because of this rare expertise, Attorney Chris Hesse brings invaluable skills to the table, giving his clients a significant edge in their case.

The ACS Forensic Chromatology Program

The American Chemistry Society (ACS) is the world’s largest scientific society. Their mission is to “improve people’s lives through the transforming power of chemistry.” The ACS Education Committee developed the forensic chromatology program to equip lawyers to “expose invalidated or non-validated science” in the courtroom in order to promote true justice.

As a highly-rated Avvo lawyer with extensive trial experience, Attorney Hesse’s forensic training makes him even more of a formidable force in the courtroom.

To receive the forensic lawyer title, an attorney must complete 140 hours of lab experience and rigorous chromatography training. He or she must also pass a final proficiency and knowledge exam. Attorney Chris Hesse is proud to be able to use his knowledge to serve his clients in such a unique and valuable way.

Put an Expert on Your Side

Here are just a few of the many benefits of hiring a forensic lawyer to defend you:

  • Having a lawyer on your side who can effectively challenge the prosecution’s faulty or mis-represented evidence is an enormous benefit to individuals facing criminal charges.
  • Attorney Chris Hesse can thoroughly research your case from a scientific perspective and spot any weaknesses in the prosecution’s claims.
  • He is equipped to employ persuasive arguments and forms of evidence that other lawyers simply cannot provide, due to a lack of scientific expertise.

When facing criminal charges, do not settle for less than a highly-skilled, highly-knowledgeable legal advocate. Contact Attorney Chris Hesse to begin preparing for your defense.

  • Thanks again David C. Hesse you are highly recommend.

    “My name is Eddie and I am a former client of Mr. Hesse . I would like to say I think he did a great job on representing me. Mr. Hesse was very clear, informative and sensitive to my situation at a very low point in my life. He called sometimes just to check on me and ask how was I doing. That really meant a lot to me. Not to mention he was very active, proficient and professional with my case. Thanks again David C. Hesse you are highly recommend.”

  • Felony Dismissed

    “Chris Hesse went above and beyond for my case in Texas. He took a Felony 1 charge and reduced it to a Class A misdemeanor. He kept me well informed along the way and set things up so that I didn’t even have to return to the state for court. Everything was resolved within a year and couldn’t have done it without Chris. I highly recommend him for his forward thinking and relentless work ethic! Thanks again for all your help Chris!”
